Boxster project

Hello all
Bought a wrecked 1998 Boxster at the end of last summer. Have been fixing it up over the winter and doing a lot of research.
List of things done so far.
Replaced damaged front bumper with 911 bumper
Replaced passenger fended and radiator assembly
The frunk pan was slightly dented from the wreck so I did my best to undent it.
Driver side radiator had a small leak in the end tank as well so that was patched.
Door lock mechanism was broken so that was fixed
Maf was replaced
Oil change
New air filter
New tires
8.5 wide wheels for the front.

I plan to install a short shifter and modify the exhaust for a little more tone. Also a performance alignment is in the books.
It looks like the intake tube has already been changed and desnorkled

I enjoy wrenching on cars and am looking forward to being able to drive this car in the spring.
